In the early morning hours of June 20, 2021, Sooke Bike Club Vice President, Glen Polson, will start his 'Everesting' attempt to mountain bike up the Bear Mountain Parkway and down Coronacation. On this route, he will climb the height of Everest (8,848m) over a distance of 165 km’s.
The purpose of the ride is to proudly support the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. Tour de Rock is a two-week bicycle journey in which a team of first responders ride over 1,200 kilometres from the north end of Vancouver Island to the south. All money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
A cancer diagnosis doesn’t yield to a global pandemic, and unfortunately, we are all affected by cancer at one time throughout our lives. It is as important as ever to try to eradicate this devastating disease.
Since 2013, Glen has been intimately involved with Tour de Rock as a member of their medical team, team trainer, and also as a team rider in 2017 and 2020. To date, Glen has personally raised over $30,000 to support the Canadian Cancer Society.
In order to make this event as successful as possible, we are asking you to donate to this worthy cause. For every donation made, your name will be entered into a draw within the Sooke Bike Club to win prizes from the club's supporting sponsors
Thanks for your support!
